The Best Women's March Signs Were By Kids

Last year Washington. This year Vegas

Hundreds of thousands of marchers assembled in Los Angeles, New York, Washington, Chicago, Denver, Boston and other cities nationwide, many donning the famous pink knit "pussy hats"-a reference to Trump's videotaped boasts of his license to grope women without repercussions".

Rallies in more than 250 United States cities saw demonstrators denounce Mr Trump's views on immigration, abortion, LGBT and women's rights a year on since he was installed in the White House.

If there were any doubt in the past that the opposition to Trump's administration would do anything more than simply fizzle out, it's hard to deny it now.

The London event drew thousands of people despite sleet and snow.

The marches aim to build on the movement launched a year ago when more than three million people turned out nationwide to voice opposition to Trump.

Speakers at the rally in Las Vegas included Elaine Wynn and Rose McKinney-James, co-chairs of the Nevada host committee for the march, Astrid Silva, director and co-founder of DREAM Big Vegas, spoken word artist and community advocate Jessica "Jess Flo" Washington, Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards, local restaurant owner Mary Sue Milliken, trans advocate ToiYoshi Brandi Castro, Desiree Alliance director Cris Sardina, DREAMer Argelia Rico, Nevada Sen.

The global events come at a time of reckoning for many men in Hollywood, the media and other industries as women speak out about sexual misconduct and inequity in general.

The rally aimed to highlight the need for political organisation ahead of mid-term congressional elections set for later this year.

The Wynwood protest wasn't really a march - the demonstrators stuck to the streets in front of the Mana Wynwood Convention Center, many of them relaxing in lawn chairs with umbrellas raised against a fierce South Florida sun. "It's a new era of feminism". Davis emphasised that it was time for progress - at a time where women have come forward with their stories of sexual misconduct, now known as the #MeToo movement.

Demonstrators on Saturday denounced Trump's views with colorful signs and even saltier language.

Trump responded on Twitter by touting what he said were economic gains of the past year that benefited women. "Get out there now to celebrate the historic milestones and unprecedented economic success and wealth creation that has taken place over the last 12 months". "Lowest female unemployment in 18 years!"

Sunday's events were tagged with the title Women's March Power to the Polls.

Among those taking part in the Philadelphia rally was 64-year-old city resident Miriam Fisher, an accountant who was clad as the Statue of Liberty. Kirsten Gillibrand on NY and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, both Democrats, urged women to run for office and vote to oppose Trump and the Republicans' agenda. "If you don't take it, no one is going to give it to you". "I see an erosion of democracy", she said.

Longoria, who starred in TV's "Desperate Housewives", told marchers their presence matters, "especially when those in power seem to have turned their backs on reason and justice".

Woodard urged everyone to register and vote, saying, "the 2018 midterms start now".
